PyYAML - The next generation YAML parser and emitter for Python.

To install, type 'python install'.

By default, the script checks whether LibYAML is installed and if so, builds and installs LibYAML bindings. To skip the check and force installation of LibYAML bindings, use the option '--with-libyaml': 'python --with-libyaml install'. To disable the check and skip building and installing LibYAML bindings, use '--without-libyaml': 'python --without-libyaml install'.

When LibYAML bindings are installed, you may use fast LibYAML-based parser and emitter as follows:

>>> yaml.load(stream, Loader=yaml.CLoader)
>>> yaml.dump(data, Dumper=yaml.CDumper)

PyYAML includes a comprehensive test suite. To run the tests, type 'python test'.
